US clarifies terrorism warning. 31/07/2003. ABC News Online:
The Australian Government is pushing ahead with plans to put sky marshals on some international flights.

So far those air marshals have operated on domestic flights, but Mr Williams has said today that Australia is now negotiating with authorities in the United States and Singapore to put air marshals onto selected international flights."

I would have thought that putting senior ADF commanders on planes was a bit silly. Why would we send Air Marshals to Singapore? And which ones? Are we sending Air Marshal Allan (Angus) Grant Houston, AO, AFC, the Chief of Air Force? Air Vice-Marshal Christopher Spence, AM, the Deputy Chief of Air Force?
